Federal Gun Control is on the Move! Tell Your Senators to Oppose H.R.8, S.42 and H.R. 1112!
Anti-gun Democrats made good on their promises this week, advancing two extreme gun control bills through the U.S. House of Representatives.

H.R. 8 Votes Reveal Dem House Leadership Values Illegal Aliens over Law-abiding Gun Owners
The Democratic-led House of Representatives passed gun control measures H.R. 8 and H.R. 1112 largely along party lines this week. However, a surprise procedural move by a Republican prior to the passage of H.R. 8 underscored the deep divisions in the Democratic Party along with the depth of the leadership’s deep disdain for gun owners.

Grassroots Spotlight: NRA Collegiate Coalition at ECU--Making a Difference on Campus
The NRA Collegiate Coalition (NRA CC) at East Carolina University (Greenville, North Carolina) is off to another great start this semester.  The group, founded by Giovanni Triana in 2017, is among the most active in the nation.  Giovanni took the initiative to start this group “to bridge the gap between staunch supporters of the Second Amendment and skeptical students with minimal exposure to the gun community.” They have in fact lived up to this mission, and embrace the full gamut of what it means to be Second Amendment advocates on campus.
